Swimming Safety



  • Never leave children unattended in or near a pool, even for a moment.


  • Watch out for the dangerous “toos” – too tired, too cold, too far from safety, too much sun.


  • Use a feet-first entry when entering water not marked for diving.


  • If you own a pool, learn Red Cross CPR and post CPR instructions in the pool area.
